Spiced Cranberry Old Fashioned


Spiced Cranberry Old Fashioned


2 oz. bourbon

1-1/2 oz. spiced cranberry simple syrup

2 drops Angostura Bitters


Shake on ice. Strain into a rocks glass. Add a big cube.

Pour 1/2 oz. of Club Soda over the cube.

Garnish with orange peel, cinnamon stick, and cranberries.


How to make the Spiced Cranberry Simple Syrup


Begin by making a spiced cranberry tea at least 24 hours before you want to serve the cocktail.


2 cups fresh cranberries

1-1/2 cups water

2 star anise pods

2 cinnamon sticks

1 tsp whole allspice

1 tsp whole cloves


Bring to a boil, simmer for 20 minutes. All the cranberries should pop open and turn to mush. Allow to cool and infuse for 24 hours. This will turn the tea mixture into a jelly. Warm in microwave just enough to make it runny again and pour into a cheesecloth bag. Squeeze out every last drop of "tea".


Measure the amount of tea that you have made.

Combine equal parts of the tea and granulated sugar in a saucepan.


Heat just until all the sugar is dissolved. Chill.
